Two new polls released Thursday show Republican Rand Paul widening his lead over Democrat Jack Conway in their race for the U.S. Senate.
In the latest Courier-Journal/WHAS11 Bluegrass Poll, Paul holds a 9-percentage-point lead over Conway, 52 to 43, before next Tuesday’s election.
Paul held a two-point edge, 52-43, in the poll last month.
In a CN|2 Poll by Insight Communications, Paul led Conway, 46.5 percent to 39 percent, with about 13 percent undecided.
That was an increase of three points for Paul from a poll CN|2 took three weeks ago.
